Circular EN, Nebraska Income Tax Withholding for Wages, Pensions and Annuities, and Gambling Winnings Paid on or after January 1, 2022

Income Tax Withholding Reminders for All Nebraska Employers

  • Circular EN. The Nebraska Department of Revenue is issuing a new Nebraska Circular EN for 2022. All tables within the Circular EN have changed, and should be used for wages, pensions and annuities, and gambling winnings paid on or after January 1, 2022.
     
  • Form W-3N Due Date. State copies of 2021 Forms W-2, W-2G, 1099-MISC, 1099-NEC, 1099-R, and the Nebraska Reconciliation of Income Tax Withheld, Form W-3N, are due January 31, 2022.
     
  • E-file Requirement. Forms W-2, W-2G, 1099-MISC, 1099-NEC, and 1099-R for tax year 2021 must be e-filed when the employer has over 50 forms to report.
     
  • Special Income Tax Withholding Rate. The “special income tax withholding rate” remains 1.5%. Employers using the wage bracket tables may continue to use the shaded/nonshaded areas of the bracket tables to determine if special income tax withholding procedures apply.
     
  • Military Spouses. Spouses of active duty military servicemembers whose income is not subject to Nebraska tax may give a Nebraska Nonresident Employee Certificate for Allocation of Income Tax Withholding, Form 9N, to their employers to exempt their wages from Nebraska income tax withholding.

Instead of mailing your 2021 forms, e-file them.
